Details of the Cheerios Childline Concert have been announced.
Childline, Ireland’s No. 1 children’s charity, hope to receive over €400,000 from this year’s concert. To date, Childline has benefitted to the tune of €4.2 million from the previous concerts, which have been held annually since 1997. Over the years acts such as Westlife, Boyzone, The Script, Robbie Williams, JLS, Alexandra Burke, Girls Aloud, Taio Cruz, Cascada, Enrique Iglesias, All Saints, Ronan Keating, Brian McFadden, S Club7, Blue, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Five, Sugababes, Busted, McFly, The Saturdays, Olly Murs, Jason Derulo and many more have all taken part.
Childline continues to experience record levels of demand for it’s services. Over 800,000 calls will be received in 2012 and almost half of those calls will go unanswered due to lack of resources.
All parties involved with the Cheerios Childline Concert are providing their services free of charge on the night including artists, organisers and The O2.
Alison Healy of Cheerios stated "we are delighted to be once again sponsoring the Cheerios Childline Concert and we are looking forward to another great night in the O2. Look out for our special 'Cheer for Childline" packs of Cheerios where you can send a "cheer" to your favourite act & help raise even more money for this great cause".
Doors will open at 6.30pm and fans should note that no queuing will be permitted prior to 6.00pm.
